Hungary's prime minister Viktor Orbán on Friday said the EU's proposed oil embargo is a red line for his country.

"The European Commission's proposal amounts to an economic atomic bomb," he said, adding that it would take four-five years to change the oil supply.

Orbán said he also did not back the sixth sanctions package because of the blacklisting of Patriarch Kirill, the head of Russia's orthodox church.
